    Most people who follow football know that Tom Brady is one of the all time late round draft steals - selected in the 6th round of the 2000 draft sixteen selections after Spergon Wynn and three spots before Todd Husak. He's outlasted 10 the 11 other QB's taken in 2000; only Chris Redman (3rd round) is also still active. More knowledgeable fans might also know that there are a few high-quality NFL QB's who didn't get much hype on draft day: Tony Romo (undrafted), Matt Hasselbeck (6th round), Matt Schaub (3rd round) and Ryan Fitzpatrick (7th round). These guys are often used as examples of how great QB's can be found anywhere in the draft. Unfortunately, that's usually not the case. Almost all successful NFL QB's are found in the top 50 selections of the draft. However, that won't stop NFL personnel men and general managers from trying to unearth the next Brady or Romo.

    Don't know why they have Romo's passer rating at 89.
